Similar, since 'Arm Drop' wasn't going to come back this year, they came up with this as a replacemant. We'll probably have a heads up street car shoot-out at the end of the year, a little like last year but with some changes/improvement's .Still sounds like fun!! but heads up would be alot more fun...must be the same as last years arm drop deal
Just a glorified 'Bracket' race , i'm a sponsor of the Friday night 'Heavy Hitter' lane & they asked me if i'd be interested in sponsoring this deal...i passed, i told them you have a bracket race every weekend, why don't you try something new for a change, like heads up
You didn't read my post...I was stating it doesn't have to be bracket racing 'Every' weekend, like it is now. This race we're talking about is supposed to be draw, hence the 'Shoot-Out' in the title, not something anybody can watch every weekend.The track openly admits they want to get more fans out, instead of the racers paying the heavy load, you ever been to a Sat./Sun. race (bracket) at Castrol? You won't have trouble finding a seat, people don't want to watch that kind of racing every single weekend. The real track's all accross N.A. draw fans in, they know that's what pays to keep the light's on, racers shouldn't be counted on to do that, not if the track expect's to succeed for the long term. Maybe i shouldn't say this here but you want to know what the track here really want's...? To sell beer! They told me that to my face, that's why the circle track here does so good, people in the seats drinking beer. There is more walk up on a Friday night to watch heads up street legal cars than a Sat./Sun. bracket race combinded. I've been around this game a long time, no need to explain to me that not everybody can afford to be flat out heads up every run down the strip. Kim Reeves from Castrol called me a couple days ago asking if i would sit down with her & her husband to bounce some idea's around regarding the track & more specifically the street program(s). One thing they are talking about is limiting the car count on Friday night's to 225 max., they have been doing that for years in Mission B.C., so at least the cars that are on the property get some runs instead of paying your money for one or two runs. Again i'm not trying to be confontational on this, just want to make sure my message doesn't get twisted. Hope everybody that goes to the Shoot-Out runs safe & fast :seeya:If it wasn't for bracket racing these tracks would close down faster than they already are. Sorry heads up racers don't pay the bills.
